Really AMAZING footage here of the New York Neon during the 1950s. Like truly breath taking neon here. 3 layers deep. Interested in that newsreel theatre. Was that an actual theatre? Or more like an arcade? Looking it up, sonafugun, an actual movie theater. Interesting. After that, there's a wee bit of horse racing footage followed by, yes, Niagara Falls footage. The first half though, is pretty amazing. This is a MUST SEE on this site!

Fabulous - Anyone else in the mood for peanuts?
My favourite is the animated sign for various products (razors, beverage, etc).
BTW, could someone please tell me what are the buildings at 5:35 and 5:52 (no, I don't mean the Empire State Building).

New York, 1953
Fine color photography of Times Square at night ( from the movies listed on marquees, probably mid-1953). Also Aquaduct race track, some shots of NYC architecture, and a visit upstate to Niagra Falls.
